Warrington Wolves

Warrington Wolves are a professional rugby league football club based in Warrington, England that competes in Super League. They play at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, having moved there from Wilderspool in 2003.

Warrington is one of the original twenty-two clubs that formed the Northern Rugby Football Union in 1895 and the only one that has played every season in the top flight. They are nicknamed "The Wire" in reference to the wire-pulling industry in the town.

They have won 3 League Championships and are the fourth most successful team in the Challenge Cup with 8 victories, behind Wigan, St Helens and Leeds. Their most successful season came in 1953-54 when they completed a Championship and Challenge Cup 'Double' when they beat Halifax twice in the space of four days to first win the Challenge Cup 18-4 in a replay at Odsal, then clinch the Championship 8-7 at Maine Rd.

The current head coach at the club is Tony Smith who joined in March 2009 and the club captain is former Great Britain captain Adrian Morley.

Famous quotes containing the word wolves:

    [Men say:] “Don’t you know that we are your natural protectors?” But what is a woman afraid of on a lonely road after dark? The bears and wolves are all gone; there is nothing to be afraid of now but our natural protectors.
